December? Already?

It is just me, or has this year flown past at a terrifying rate? I can hardly believe Chrstmas is right round the corner already.

There's still so much stuff that needs to be done; we've not finished Christmas shopping, we still haven't finished sorting out the boiler (although we do have a number to all now) and we are no where near getting that sodding kitchen put in! And lets face it, having a functioning boiler before the baby is born and freezing is a good idea, as is having a kitchen where I can clean and sterlise bottles, prepare food for baby etc is a good idea too - just in case there are problems with breast feeding. In fact, a nice kitchen to make good food for me so I can actually MAKE good breast milk for baby would be handy!

I can't honestly see the kitchen going in before Christmas now. The boiler is a must though so I think I might have to make 'the call' on Tuesday and get a price at least.

Once the New Year is here work starts on the Nursery. I've seen some lovely stuff in B&Q which will easily transform 'box room' to 'baby room' without too much fuss or expence. Infact, it's safe and easy enough for me to be able to do myself without any danger to me or the bump so I am looking forward to doing it! I'm thinking of a nice cheerful, non-gender specific jungle theme, just bright enough to be fun without being so bright as to distract baby when they should be sleeping.

Time is already zipping by and countdown to baby is moving so fast my head is spinning! There's only 17 weeks lift. 17 WEEKS! That's no time... That's just 15 weeks left at work - less if you take out the holiday time for Christmas & New Year.

It's all good though. I'm seeing loads more of Mum (which is a particularly good thing recently, all things considered) and I can see her really getting into the idea of being a Gran, Dad seems to love the idea of being a grandparent too and is taking the roll very seriously with regular phone calls to check on mine and Wiggles progress. Yorkie, especially, is getting into fatherhood. He's now doing what I was doing a few months back: having it suddenly hit him he's going to be a parent and saying something without realising, like 'wow, I'm going to be dad' or 'we'll have a baby soon!' and loving my belly.

And yet, while I am perfectly happy being pregnant, and feel confident that we'll have a healthy and happy baby, I am well aware that in 17 weeks time (give or take) our lives are going to change dramatically - forever. That is a little worrying. Being married does not seem to have changed things much for us - well, not to my mind anyway, although we were not married long enough to tell really before Wiggle popped up - and I like that about us. Having Baby WILL change things. I'm confident that it will change things for the better (once my hormones calm down again). I just hope I'm right! I'm liking this so much I'm actually willing to do it again! Maybe he'll get his 4 kids after all!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
